School First

Being a teenager I've seen many people put their boyfriends/girlfriends first or get in trouble with drugs/alcohol. Not that I'm against living life, but teens forget that life is long and that success in school will = success in life. Certainly, there is plenty of time for relationships and partying later. Learning is fascinating and rewarding. I feel wonderful when I can make my parents proud when I take that report card home. Unfortunately, this isnt too common anymore. But kids need to remember that if they do well in school they WILL get the necessary financial help to attend the college of THEIR choice and after getting that degree the world is full of opportunity.
